R-PLEX Glucagon Antibody Set Overview
The R-PLEX Glucagon Antibody Set includes a matched capture and detection antibody pair and calibrator for the quick and easy measurement of Glucagon in biological samples. R-PLEX products leverage MSD’s electrochemiluminescence technology for better sensitivity and a larger dynamic range than traditional ELISAs. R-PLEX matched antibody sets enable the development of singleplex and multiplex immunoassays. Individual assays may be developed using MSD avidin- or streptavidin-coated plates. Custom multiplex assays with any combination of R-PLEX analytes, as well as R-PLEX plus U-PLEX analytes can be developed on U-PLEX MULTI-SPOT plates.

Glucagon Analyte

Description - Glucagon (GCG) is a polypeptide hormone that is produced by the α-cells in the pancreas. Glucagon is involved in maintaining normal levels of glucose in the blood by causing the liver to convert glycogen into glucose. It stimulates hepatic glycogenolysis, gluconeogenesis, and ketogenesis, which are antagonistic effects to those of insulin action, resulting in increased blood glucose levels. Glucagon receptors are present in liver, kidney, intestinal smooth muscle, brain, and adipose tissue.
